<quoted text>Since i'm thinking quite clearly and see things as they really are. The media you talk about have not done there job and if they had obama would not be president. But they refuse to dig into obama's past and find out he believes and in their eyes can do not wrong. Obama was raised by socialist and indoctinated him with their socialist ideas. His ideas are wreaking america. Look around our economy is great worst. And when obama care is implimented it will sink us. I'm not wishing this on america, I see it happening to america can do nothing to stop it and wish america would wake up and realize what is happening. I love my country and i'm seeing obama destroying it. I see people all around me hurting because of the economy. Do you care, if you do quit defending this president he does have a big hand in the direction it's going. In the next for years it will get worst.
Glad you're thinking so clearly, now work on your spelling,

The average Walmart "associate," Wake Up Walmart reports, makes $11.75 an hour. That's $20,744 per year. Those wages are slightly below the national average for retail employees, which is $12.04 an hour.
They also produce annual earnings that, in a one-earner household, are below the $22,000 poverty line.
Read more: http://www.businessinsider.com/Walmart-employ...
UT-oh below the poverty line- can we say , reduced or free school lunches, food stamps, health care, etc. all paid for by these folks who hate welfare but love Walmart.
Walmart had a net profit of 15 billion and its employees are supplemented by the Gov.
Can you imagine that?
PS,
Have you noticed all those self check out lanes going in Walmart.
I wonder what line those cashiers will be standing in next?
Yes and that $ 11.75 is quite a bit more than the $7.25 minium wage. And we all know its takes two incomes to make it these days. Do you realize how much property taxes Wal Mart Pays. How much vehicle semi truck road use taxes they pay. Wal Mart injects more revenue into the local economy than the Mom & Pop buisnesses ever did. The local pharmisit was a crook over charging the old folks for their medicine & pills. Then Walmart instituted the $4.00 prescricption plan. Without Wal Mart the country would be in much worse shape.Wal Mart will cash your paycheck. If your car wont start and needs a boost the guys from the auto service will give you a boost free of charge. years ago I was in the semi truck miles from home in a very small town (No bank or Atm) and needed to cash a personal check. The walmart in that town Called the walmart in my home town. there was a branch of my bank in the wal mart. They Oked my personal check so I could get $500 cash. Where else would that ever happen?

Which is more than twice the starting pay in most of the south...I spent a couple of winters in ND before the oil boom, the State sucked then and even more now. Ask one of those high paid Wal-Mart employees how much rent they pay a month for crap housing, if they can find it...how much food costs.
You idiots continually skirt the borders of reality, but that's not a bit surprising.
Yeah, just like someone making 11.75 hr and trying to raise a family will proudly get rich on that Walmart stock they buy with that extra money.

I wonder why Walmart is so charitable in New Mexico why it had to relied on their bought and paid for Congressman Bozeman to build a major road to their front door at WM head quarters.

BENTONVILLE, Ark.— The U.S. House has approved a federal highway bill that includes $37 million for widening and extending the Bentonville street that provides the main access to the headquarters of Wal-Mart Stores Inc.

<quoted text>Do you have a problem with people making money buying stock. It is because obama thinks it's wrong to make money. You know those evil rich people your old pal obama is always degrading. Old barney their is nothing wrong with making money. Capitalism does work. And rich people, the majority are charitable good people. And without those people we would be a third world country. Without those rich business people we would have even more people out of work. You president wants to take from the rich give to the poor. He can not have it both ways. Our economy is getting worst. Open up your eyes and look. It ain't as rosey as you make it out to be. Obama is a socialist who is dividing our country instead of uniteing us. He lies and you old barney are dumb enough to believe him. His policies is wreaking us.
Barney is a taker so ANYBODY that has just a little more than he has doesn't deserve it in his eyes.

But Walmart is successful and to be considered successful you must be doing better than someone, therefore according to liberal thinking, you have to be taking something away from those that are not successful for you to be in your position, therefore, you are evil. I remember the mom and pop stores of yesteryear. Any of those that did well were bad mouthed also, let's face it, liberals are never going to be pro business, unless the business is failing, then the business will have to lay off workers and they will be hated for that. I guess the Barney character is right, sit on your butt, draw a check, get on Topix and pretend you know what you are talking about. Silly way to live, but it seems to work for the boy.
Here is what does not work for the boy.

Bozeman spokesman Patrick Creamer said the congressman’s request for the funding was penciled in for $3 million when the bill was in committee.

“It was very unexpected on our end,” Creamer said.“It’s rare that you get full funding.”

Young, chairman of the committee, inserted new allocations for hundreds of projects around the nation the day before the House passed the $284 billion bill March 10. The Bentonville project was among the late additions.

Ask for three million, and get 37 million US TAX dollars, a by-pass debate, slipped in at the last minuet.

Now I admit that happen a few years ago, but last year Walmart after taxes made 15 billion dollars, they paid their CEO seven million dollars.

This Republican Congressman gave them 37 million of your tax dollars.

How are you going to defend that?

BTW- that is a reply with no condescending comments, can you reciprocate?

Very small percentage of the revenue produced for the government, of course you have a problem with the government providing any infrastructure for the ones that are producing, most nonproductive people do. If Mr Walton had had your business insight, he would have died delivering milk, door to door. You should be in downtown Bentonville, it will take at least that much road work to handle the vendor traffic. I believe this is a good investment for the government, as far as return on investment.

If that employee would just buy 5% of their pay in Wal Mart stock Wall Mart will match that 15% thats a instant 15% return on their saings. and wal Mart considers the 15% incom so th taxes are witheld at that purchase time. Even if the stock stayed stagnant there would be a 15% return. Then when sold the only tax to be paid would be on the gain if the stock price rose. Thats not too shabby. I know people who purchased just a small percentage way back 40 years ago who became millionares. and there arent broker fees to pay. No other company that Im aware of has enabled their employees to prosper in such a manner. Anyone can save 10% of their income. If someone savs 10% and uses that 10% to buy bargain investments they will prosper. There is a cause & effect natural Karma that makes positive actions like saving attract other positive actions. Having money isnt evil. Resenting Taxes and the goverment rewarding sloth & parasitizm isnt being greedy.

You speak words of wisdom. Life is what you make it, it's not so much what you have in this life, it is what you do with what you have. And like you said some Wal Mart workers ended up millionaires after starting at the bottom and working their way up. This country rewards hard work. Wal Mart is one of the best things to ever happen to this great Nation of ours.
